Walking Figure

Donald Baechiler

Fascinated by art created by the non-artist, Baechler imitates these naïve forms with a critical edge. In his Walking Figure, Baechler presents the image of a young woman striding forward as if caught in mid-step, the silence of her expression commands the space. Baechler’s work is included in the permanent collections of such prestigious museums as the Whitney Museum of American Art and Museum of Modern Art, and Guggenheim Museum, in New York and Centre Pompidou in Paris.
